The Susquehanna River conditions have been less than ideal this past week due to recent rain and snowstorms. The dedicated anglers are doing fair and reporting some nice smallmouth bass, walleye and muskie being taken below the Adam Bower Dam south to McKee's Half Falls. Some pike have been taken in the same areas in recent weeks. Walleye are hitting on large 5-inch rubber twist minnows in smoke, pumpkin pepper and various chartreuse colors. At most locations on the river smallies are still feeding up. Several colors of jointed Rapalas such as vampire and silver have been the top producers. Muskie are being taken at some of the popular locations on large muskie lures and spinners such as Jake, Creek Chub Pike and Mepp's Muskie Killer spinners in various colors. Anglers are reporting some good fishing at little Little Buffalo Lake where some nice perch and other species are being caught on live shiners and Berkley Power baits. Most northern lakes are reporting some good ice that should become better as the nights get colder. Ice fisherman are reporting 4-inches or more ice on most lakes. Anglers are urged to be careful during the cold water period. Ice comes and goes quickly and can be dangerous.
